Evidence Twilights - Improving Literacy in Secondary schools
A session working with an expert who can help practitioners and leaders know better how to use evidence informed approaches to improve Literacy in secondary schools.
It is open to all (teachers, leaders, teaching assistants, governors). These monthly events provide an opportunity for schools to engage with the evidence. A member of the Aspirer Research School team will share an EEF Guidance Report highlighting key messages and thoughts about translating these findings into practice.

Service Level Agreements 2020-2021 - Now available to purchase
I am pleased to announce that your new SLA agreements are now ready to purchase via My Schools Services, for the financial year 1st April 2020 > 31st March 2021. We look forward to working together throughout 2020/21. Please ensure that all SLA's are purchased by 6th March 2020.
The vast majority of SLA's from 2020 onwards will run for a period of three years. There will be exceptions to this, for example Building Services SLA, Tree & Woodland SLA and some ICT SLA’s which will run for a period of 1 year. This is to allow more flexibility to schools, for example; statutory requirements on premises are not always on a yearly cycle so schools requirements may change year on year. Advances in technology in the ICT field often means new technology can become available more frequently and again by offering yearly SLA’s in those areas it offers more flexibility to the schools. There are also services such as Education and Child Psychology and Careers for Young People which offer more bespoke advice & guidance, so again these can be purchased by the school/academy on an “as and when required” basis, so are exempt from the 3 year period. All services will clearly state the period of the SLA on My School Services.
Step by step guidelines on how to purchase SLA's can be found via logging into My School Services and clicking on "Resources" at the top of the page and then select "Step by Step Guidelines" alternatively click here.
Please ensure that all SLAs are confirmed with Governing bodies, where required. A small number of services have made significant changes to their specification, so please ensure that you download a copy of the new Schools Business Services brochure by logging on to My School Services and visiting Services > Download Services Brochure.
We look forward to continuing to work with you to develop the range and quality of LA services further in order to better support teaching, learning and management in schools. We would welcome collective conversations about how we can do this on either an operational or strategic level.
Should you have a query about specific services we would ask that you contact the service lead, in the first instance. You can find our contact details here: http://www.myschoolservices.co.uk/Contacts
